Welcome to InScience
Welcome to InScience 2015 Last year, the InScience â€“ Dutch International Science Film Festival was still only an idea. Now, we have a festival where more than fifty films will be screened, where over two hundred scientists, directors and producers from all over the world will meet to talk about the world of film and science, and more than twenty artists will explore the relationship between art and science in their work. InScience is a meeting platform for the public, film, science, art and the business sector. Visitors can judge whether the first edition of InScience has what it takes to become an annual tradition. We hope that many catalogues will follow. Johan van de Woestijne InScience Director

Join psychologist Ap Dijksterhuis of Radboud University, in his quest to understand happiness. This energetic and very humorous presentation examines the interconnections between modern psychology and neuroscience and classical Western and Eastern philosophy. The presentation examines mindfulness, running through free will on up to the consumption ideal. Along the way, Dijksterhuis explains how we can find happiness. And who doesn’t want to be happy?
The Society of Arts of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and Radboud University’s Culture on Campus have launched a collaboration on the Wunderkammer project in the 2015-2016 academic year between students in the ArtEZ Honours Programme and the Radboud University Honours Academy. This project’s goal is to encourage cooperation and interaction between the arts and sciences via the concept of the Wunderkammer. How does the Wunderkammer, in which curiosities from across the globe have been collected and displayed since the 16th century, apply to the way knowledge can be obtained today? The process of collection, which lies at the heart of the Wunderkammer, may also be relevant to the practices of contemporary scientists and artists. Working in the scope of this joint project, students will have the opportunity to research the role of imagination and curiosity in gaining knowledge and broadening perspectives. www.knaw.nl www.cultuuropdecampus.nl www.artez.nl www.ru.nl

What’s the perfect match between art and science?
The names for this phenomenon run the gamut from serious gaming to applied gaming, educational games and clinical games. However, regardless of the name, ‘games with a purpose’ are all the rage. In this expert meeting, developers, scientists, designers, teachers, and clinicians in the serious gaming industry will meet to play and discuss the latest serious games. The goal is to connect all players in this rich and interdisciplinary field. This will enable them to help each other out where needed and forge lasting connections - all with a view to expanding and developing the practice and scientific study of serious games. Organised by Frank Leoné (Marbelous Minds), Ruben Kwaaitaal (Gamestad.co), and Ken Koontz (Radboud University)
InScience, the Society of Arts, The Young Academy from KNAW an the Council for Culture explore the relation between science and art. Thosr two flirt with each other more and more. Artists are inspired by the newest discoveries and vice-versa scientists’ creative thinking process is stimulated by artists. The Society of Arts and The Young Academy are currently working on a dating website where artists and scientists can find collaboration partners. How is collaboration established? When is it successful? And most of all: what is the secret to a perfect match? Host Jeroen Bartelse, General Secretary of the Council for Culture, will lead the discussion addressing these questions. Joining him will be experts from both worlds, the creators of the new website and, of course, the initiators.

FILM | Annual programme — WHEN WE STARTED WORKING ON THE FIRST EDITION OF INSCIENCE - DUTCH INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE FILM FESTIVAL LESS THAN A YEAR AGO, WE NEEDED TO ASK OURSELVES ONE IMPORTANT QUESTION: WHAT IS A SCIENCEFILM? AS A FILM FESTIVAL DEDICATED TO SCIENCE DIDN’T EXIST YET IN THE BENELUX WE STARTED LOOKING FOR THE ANSWERS TO THIS QUESTION. AFTER MANY CONVERSATIONS AND, OF COURSE, AFTER WATCHING MANY FILMS, WE NOW HAVE A FESTIVAL THAT PRESENTS THE BEST SCIENCEFILMS MADE IN 2014-2015. THOUGH OUR AMIBITIONS WERE HIGH, WE NEVER COULD HAVE DREAMED THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO PRESENT TO YOU SUCH A RICH PROGRAM OF FILMS THAT SHOW SCIENCE IN THE BROADEST SENSE. THE SELECTION COMMISSION WATCHED MORE THAN 300 FILMS OF WHICH 33 WERE SELECTED FOR THIS YEARS COMPETITION PROGRAM. THE PROGRAM, WITH 17 DUTCH PREMIÈRES, CONSISTS OF A WIDE VARIETY OF FEATURE FILMS, DOCUMENTARIES, SHORTS AND ANIMATIONFILMS. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE THAT HELPED US WITH THE FIRST EDITION OF INSCIENCE. JUST LIKE SCIENCE AND FILM DO, INSCIENCE WILL KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS, BECAUSE ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS IS WORTH SO MUCH MORE THAN TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT ANSWER.

TIM GRABHAM & JASPER SHARP | DOCUMENTARY | UNITED KINGDOM | 82 MIN | 2014 | DUTCH PREMIERE
KYLE RIDEOUT | DRAMA | CANADA | 104 MIN | 2015 DUTCH PREMIERE
Slime mould is the black sheep of biology. While thousands of different slime moulds exist, we know very little about this organism. What we do know is that it is able to survive for long periods of time in hostile environments, patiently waiting for a moment to flourish again. The Creeping Garden puts the humble slime mould in the spotlight.
A stylised psychological drama about the renowned photographer and ‘godfather of the cinema’ Eadweard Muybridge. As a photographer in the pre-cinema era, Muybridge was obsessed with motion. His series of galloping horse images are still familiar to most. However, his obsession with his work had terrible consequences for his marriage. On 17 October 1874, he killed his wife’s lover and was the last American to be acquitted on a verdict of justifiable homicide.

Director Kim Nguyen was previously nominated for an Oscar for his feature film Rebelle.
They are found in plastic bottles, toys, cosmetics, cleaning products and pesticides, but no one seems to care all that much. Endocrination reveals why chemicals that affect our endocrine system have not yet been banished from our daily lives. The film is the result of eighteen months of research and shows how easily European institutions are swayed by the influences of the business sector.

Is the Man Who is Tall Happy?
JASON SUSSBERG & DAVID ALVARADO | DOCUMENTARY | UNITED KINGDOM, UNITED STATES, INDIA 78 MIN | 2014 | DUTCH PREMIERE
MICHEL GONDRY | DOCUMENTARY | FRANCE | 90 MIN | 2013 | PREMIERE BEFORE DUTCH RELEASE
Bill Andrews and Aubrey de Grey are two scientists with very different characters but with the same objective: to find a cure for aging. This comical documentary portrays their theories and research, but also gives the audience a glimpse into their personal lives. The result is an engaging character study of two eccentric individuals on a mission to change the world.
Noam Chomsky is one of the most famous and respected linguists and philosophers of our time. In Is the Man Who is Tall Happy?, he is interviewed about language, science and politics by acclaimed director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). Gondry captures this stream of thoughts in animations that he draws himself by hand. This playful documentary is a fitting tribute to one of the great free thinkers of our day.

This original film uses a unique mix of documentary, feature film and animation techniques to tell the story of the renowned Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza and his lasting influence.

One of the great things about movies is that they can show us how to look at things in a different light. In this wonderfully shot short we think we see alternately the Moon, the Sun and some stars, but this isn’t really the case. Instead we are taught how we can see our galaxy in places we wouldn’t normally expect.
Dark, hand drawn sketches of spooky landscapes are brought to life with expressive lighting and mysterious music, in this atmospheric and eerie short.

THERE IS ALSO A PROGRAM OF DRONES, A COLLECTION OF SHORTS SELECTED BY GO SHORT – INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL NIJMEGEN AND A FILM CONCERT WITH THE CLASSIC FRAU IM MOND. IN DE KENNIS VAN (N)U YOU GET TO SEE A NEW SCIENCE TV PROGRAM AFTER WICH ITS CREATORS WILL TALK TO YOU ABOUT NEW WAYS OF MAKING TELEVISION.
BIO·FICTION@InScience The InScience Special zooms in on a specific topic in science and the Special for 2015 is BIO·FICTION. In the spring of 2014, the BIO·FICTION Science, Art & Film Festival was held in Vienna, an event completely dedicated to the field of synthetic biology. A number of the most successful films will be showcased at InScience. Luminescent plants that replace streetlights? Bacterial computers? Tattoos that tell us how our bodies are doing? It sounds like science fiction, but in the world of synthetic biology, this future is very much within reach. The Special consists of a film block in which scientists, philosophers, and artists reflect on the content of the films. Philosopher and biologist Ellen ter Gast and philosopher and programme creator Lisa Doeland will moderate the discussion. Talk with: Wilhelm Huck, Full professor of Chemistry at Radboud University; Frank Theys, filmmaker; Floris Kaayk, artist; Laurens Landeweerd, philosopher at Radboud University; Vitor Martins dos Santos, Full professor of Synthetic Biology at Wageningen University; and Lucas Evers, head of the Waag Society Open Wetlab.

In the near future scientists will have discovered a way to let plants spread bioluminescent light continuously all through spring and summer. These plants have become all the rage and fill the houses and the streets, almost replacing street lamps. In this poetic short made out of beautiful drawings we follow a man who hates bright and colourful lights, hoping to find a bit of darkness to hide in.
Based on ideas that where presented at iGEM 2012 this science-fiction documentary shows future methods of immediately detecting and curing serious diseases with the help of special tattoos. Sound: Omri Azari / Featured scientists: Richard Kelwick, Richard Bowater

De Kennis van (N)u
NTR is interested in your opinion. Like a true Nils Holgersson, researcher Thomas Lameris flies with barnacle geese to a breeding ground in Arctic Russia. He knows where his geese are headed, but doesnâ€™t know the route they take and how they plan their trip. For that reason, Thomas equipped 40 geese with GPS trackers last year. Every five minutes, the apparatus saves the exact location of the goose. Now Thomas is returning to Russia to find the geese with the trackers and to download the data. De Kennis van Nu is going along on the expedition and will spend three months in a former Soviet weather station on the tundra for the real fieldwork. Programme maker Stefan Sand and moderator Roland Postma go into discussion with the audience. De Kennis van Nu is NTRâ€™s science TV programme, presented by Diederik Jekel and Elisabeth van Nimwegen. It airs each Wednesday at 19.20 on NPO 2.
Drones It is the first time a Dutch Film Festival will show a series of shorts about and made by drones. The festival combines these shorts with live drone demonstrations. From the Himalayan Glaciers to Chernobyl, we will see how drones can easily reach places we humans cannot. These shorts will show you the freedom of filming and conducting science with drones. Walter Immerzeel, researcher at Utrecht University, will explain how one can construct 3D maps of landscapes using drones. Kirk Scheper, researcher at Delft University of Technology, will talk about autonomous drones. Massoud Hassani, graduate at Eindhoven Design Academy and founder of Mine Kafon, will talk about the drone he has designed: its goal is to automatically detect and detonate mines. Both Kirk and Massoud will conduct live drone demonstrations. Philosoher and programme maker Anco Peeters is the moderator.

What does it feel like to a brain? This weird and strangely touching short gets to the bottom of that question, by making a brain in a lab the main character.
A man walks around in an astronaut suit, never taking it off. In a voice-over he explains his strange tale, while we see him perform day-to-day tasks.
Like a clockwork, this bizarre experimental short, shows a series of strange events in jerky stop-motion movements. These events include erotica, performance, science and frozen fishes.

Dr. Nick Laslowicz of the Institute for Centrifugal Research invents amusement park rides as a way to research the development of the brain of young children. All right, not really. Though this hilarious mockumentary with wonderful visual effects imagines what those rides would like and how they might benefit scientific research.
A scientist interested in dreams finds out that the squirrel who regularly appears in his dreams actually appears in the dreams of others too. What’s more, the squirrel always has good advice for people. How is this possible? More importantly, where will the squirrel appear next and can you catch a dream animal? These are the central scientific questions in this animated, absurdist comedy.
In this animated short we meet both very long animals and very small, groundbound beings. Both could be the death of the other in this strange circle of life that defies description, but begs to be seen.

SCIENCE | Big Ideas — EACH DAY OF THE FESTIVAL, A BIG IDEAS EVENT IS HELD IN COORDINATION WITH RADBOUD REFLECTS. DURING THESE EVENTS, A LEADING SCIENTIST OR SPECIALIST IS INTERVIEWED AND ENGAGES IN CONVERSATION WITH THE AUDIENCE.
Koert van Mensvoort
Imagine a future in which robots have biological or part-biological brains and in which neural implants link the human nervous system bi-directionally with technology and the Internet. Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics at Coventry University, thinks this is possible and, what’s more, he’s already experimenting with it on himself. Kevin Warwick is Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) at Coventry University. Prior that he was Professor of Cybernetics at The University of Reading, England. His research areas are artificial intelligence, control, robotics and biomedical engineering. He is a Chartered Engineer (CEng.) and is a Fellow of The Institution of Engineering & Technology (FIET). He is the youngest person ever to become a Fellow of the City & Guilds of London Institute (FCGI). Alejandro Tauber, editor of Vice Netherlands, will moderate the discussion.
The relationship between humans, nature, and technology is changing at lightning speed. With his projects, scientist, philosopher, and artist Koert van Mensvoort joins the discussion surrounding new prospective developments that will upset the boundary between nature and technology. Koert van Mensvoort is the director of the Next Nature Network, Next Nature fellow at the Eindhoven University of Technology and board member of the Society of Arts at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Mensvoort is an artist and philosopher best known for his work on the philosophical concept of Next Nature, which revolves around the idea that our technological environment has become so complex, omnipresent and autonomous that it is best perceived as a nature of its own. It is his aim to better understand our co-evolutionary relationship with technology and help set out a track towards a future that is rewarding for both humankind and the planet at large. Philosopher Lisa Doeland will moderate the discussion.
The Stanford Prison Experiment and the Milgram Experiment are the two best-known social psychological science experiments. They are both particularly famous, or rather infamous, for revealing the extent to which humans are capable of immoral and violent behaviour. Power corrupts. Psychologist DaniĂŤl Wigboldus, dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Radboud University, provides an explanation for the two experiments and talks about why these were so important. During his talk you get to hear an exclusive pre-recorded interview with Professor Philip Zimbardo, the initiator of the Stanford Prison Experiment. Daniel Wigboldus became a full professor in social psychology at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. From 2009 till September 2013 he was director of the School of Psychology and Artificial Intelligence in Nijmegen. From September 2013 onwards he is Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Radboud University. Elianne Keulemans, head of Radboud Reflects, will moderate the discussion.
Much of our personality is already set by our genes. Will you get sick? Wind up on a path of criminality? Or will you win a Nobel Prize? Genetics play a key role in social issues such as illness and health. But what role does it play in our vision of who we are? In what way does genetics contribute to the classic tension between nature and nurture? Amade M’charek is Professor Anthropology of Science at the department of Anthropology of the University of Amsterdam. Her research interests are in forensics, forensic anthropology and race. She is the PI of the project Dutchness in Genes and Genealogy, a project examining how Dutchness is enacted in collaborations between population geneticists, archaeologists and genealogists. M’charek is also the PI of the project Sexuality & Diversity in the Making. She is the founding chair of the European Network for the Social Studies of Forensics (EUnetSSF) and the convenor of the seminar series Ir/relevance of Race in Science and Society. Her most recent research is on face making and race making in forensic identification, for which she received a five-year ERC consolidator grant in December 2013. Philosopher Lisa Doeland will moderate the discussion.
Have you always wondered why there are seasons? Did you know there’s a gaping black hole in the middle of the Milky Way? And how does that affect earth’s seasons? Meet your host of Junior Big Ideas, physicist Diederik Roest of the University of Groningen, who will be present to answer these and any other questions young science enthusiasts might have. Diederik is interested in the mathematical properties of string theory, but enjoys testing abstract theory experimentally. For example, he is studying how string existence could be proved by observations at the largest distance scales, such as cosmic background radiation. Roest hopes that the Planck space observatory’s latest measurements will offer clues as to whether string theory actually does play a role in nature. Diederik Roest is passionate about explaining complex science to laypersons in order to build trust in research. Philosopher Maite Tjon A Hie will moderate the discussion.
SCIENCE | Lectures — THE INSCIENCE PROGRAMME OFFERS INSPIRING LECTURES COVERING A VARIETY OF TOPICS.
The Eyes Deceive
Filosofisch Café Spinoza
The Fifteen Project | DUET
Why do we see things that aren’t there? Magician and philosopher Tilman Andris and neuroscientist Rob van Lier of the Donders Institute at Radboud University, use magic tricks and optical illusions to explain why we can be so easily deceived. As such, it appears that the world we see is largely a creation of our brains. Historian Joos van Vught will moderate the discussion.
How relevant is a 17th century philosopher in this day and age? In this collaboration between InScience and Filosofisch Café Nijmegen, we take a look at the philosophy of the Netherlands’ most famous philosopher: Spinoza. As a follow-up to the documentary shown in the afternoon, we will continue to philosophise in the chapel café with neuroscientist Peter Hagoort of Radboud University (who features in the documentary) as well as Piet Steenbakkers, Professor of Spinoza Studies at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Jan Branssen of the Radboud University will be the moderator.
Did you know that you mirror the actions of others in your brain? Choreographer Arno Schuitemaker uses mirror neurons as inspiration for the dance performance The Fifteen Project | DUET, as performed by Manel Salas Palau and Mitchell-Lee van Rooij. Our mirror neurons allow us to unconsciously share the movements of the dancers. Following the performance, Arno Schuitemaker will talk about his curiosity about the physical relationship between dancer and spectator and will pose the question: how do I relate to the other? Programme maker and philosopher Katie Verest is the moderator.
Einstein @ The Movies
Exactly a century ago, Einstein completed his theory of relativity, which drastically altered our perception of space and time. In this lecture, theoretical physicist Karel Van Acoleyen of Ghent University will explain this wonderful theory and illustrate how the theory of relativity plays an important role in many films. You can expect a trip through both the science and fiction of zero gravity, time travel, black holes, wormholes, and much more. Programme maker and scientist Dave Willems will moderate the discussion. www.ugent.be
Light and Magnetism: a Brilliant Combination
Have you ever played with light using a lens or a prism? Then you have seen how light and material influence one another, but did you know that light and magnets also affect each other? Spinoza Prize winner Theo Rasing, professor of experimental physics at Radboud University, talks about his groundbreaking research into the influence of laser light on magnets. He has developed a technique to manipulate the poles of magnetic particles with the help of a laser. This technique should lead to extraordinary new possibilities, such as ultra-fast data storage on a hard drive. Programme maker and scientist Dave Willems is the moderator. www.ru.nl
The Pig Child
Are there limits to what we ought to do in science and art? How would you judge these limits? This is what we will investigate in the Trans-species Tribunal. The short film Pig Child by Lucy Campbell and Loran Dunn, about a woman who infuses her embryo with pig dna, will be the introduction. Lucas Evers from Waag Society introduces the “Trust me I’m an artist” project in which human and animal dna was combined in a real art project. He will do this together with Slovenian artist and scientist Špela Petrič, who participated in that project.
A female scientist decides to inseminate herself with an embryo that is half human and half pig. Now pregnant with a new species she doubts whether she is ready for this.
After this Luca Consoli, ethicist and physicist at Radboud University, will lead a discussion with Lucy, Lorann, Lucas, and Špela. What are the ethical limits of science? Can art encourage scientists to investigate those limits and even cross them? The audience will be invited to play judge in this Trans-species Tribunal.

Science fiction films transport us with astonishing ease to distant stars and planets, and even other time periods. Scientific journalist George van Hal of the New Scientist, will take the audience along on a journey through space and time. On this journey, he will explain how Einstein’s ideas are still relevant today and open the doors to a future similar to that portrayed in films such as Star Trek and Interstellar. Sanne Groen will moderate the discussion.
The Besiendershuis is continually seeking out unique cooperative ventures in Nijmegen, with the aim of combining art, culture, cultural history, knowledge and business in extraordinary new ways. InScience will serve, among other things, as a platform where artists and scientists meet. While the final products of this interaction remain to be seen, the anticipation adds a great deal of excitement. Artist Sanne Willemsen and psychiatrist Anne Speckens of the Radboud University Medical Centre’s Mindfulness programme will meet to discuss options for collaboration. During the awards ceremony on Sunday evening, they will talk about their meetings and how science and art can reinforce each other. Sanne Willemsen will also present her book, Come on Down and See the Idiot Right Here, as an InScience exhibit. She will tell stories of people whom many people consider fall outside of society. These stories offer a unique glimpse of these individuals’ world and lifestyle on the fringes of society.

Biomorphic creatures and Lissajous figures
PHOTOGRAPHY / IRIS SIJBOM LUX, FIRST FLOOR
PROJECTION / KESENIA PANKRATOVA MARIËNBURGPLEIN
The Animethic photo exhibit focuses on cooperation between humans, nature and animals. It also conveys the interdependence between humans and animals. Using photography, Iris Sijbom enters and portrays the domain where humans have complete control over animals: the laboratory. Sijboom’s photos depict laboratory animals as resilient individuals, and raise awareness of the conditions behind laboratory walls.
Laser is a perfect tool to show the beauty of Lissajous figures, which describe complex harmonic motion with three-demential knots and different parabolas. The sequence of these abstract, mathematical figures will be projected on the wall of Arthouse Lux, augmented with short animation loops about digital nature, the imaginary “ Biomorphic creatures” that are reminiscent of bio-organisms.

PERFORMANCE / MARTIJN VAN BOVEN | GERT-JAN PRINS SYNTHONZAAL
INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION / DISNEY RESEARCH LAB: IVAN POUPYREV | JONAS LOH | THEGREENEYL | PHILIPP SCHÖSSLER | CHRISTIAN RIEKOFF LUX CAFÉ
The Black Smoking Mirror is a performance centred around the principle of light reflection. Martijn van Boven and Gert-Jan Prins created a film screen from tungsten. Using two strong lasers, the duo projects a lightshow onto the screen. In fact, the light is so intense that the screen itself catches fire. The remains of the lasers’ light can be seen on the smouldering screen. An electric sound field also surrounds the audience, creating an awe-inspiring backdrop. Black Smoking Mirror not only demonstrates light reflection, but also the effects of light.
Have you ever thought it possible to interact with plants one day? Swing by and check out Botanicus Interacticus. Launched as an experiment by Disney Research Lab, this project features Touché technology that allows users to do just that! The soil surrounding the plants contains sensors that transmit electric signals through the plants, enabling them to sense touch. The system is so accurate that it can identify the part of the plant being touched and the intensity of the touch. It also boasts a unique ability to make plants interactive without leaving any damage, or even being visible.
Come on down and see the idiot right here
The Dark Side of the Sun
The book Come on down and see the idiot right here by Sanne Willemsen will be shown as part of the exposition of InScience. With the book Sanne Willemsen tells the story of people who for many are placed outside of society. For nine months she followed three man that live in the same social care home and captured their lives. It offers the viewer a unique look of the world of these people and the way they live their lives.
In her photo series, Imara Angulo Vidal visualises how a lack of sunlight could affect our planet. This series was prompted by a December 2014 article, claiming that NASA was predicting six days of total darkness on earth due to a solar storm. Later, this proved to be a hoax. Nonetheless, Imara took inspiration from facts and projections to create a realistic portrait of a planet impacted by long-term deprivation of light and heat. Not only would the earth fall into decline, but fear and survival instincts would also take over. Imara’s project reminds us of how much we depend on the sun and just how small and fragile we are as human beings.

LIGHT INSTALLATION / VLADIMIR GRAFOV MARIËNBURGPLEIN
Drifting Patterns, a kinetic sound installation, is the physical product of research into alternative forms of energy and ways to incorporate that energy into a work of sound art. Drifting Patterns, a wind organ, converts kinetic energy into pneumatic pressure. That pressure creates magical sounds that travel through the five organ pipes distributed throughout Mariënburgplein. The result is a sound composition that changes continually as the sculptures move about.
In Entropy Scroll, Vladimir Grafov demonstrates a live stream of continuous measurements, random quantum fluctuations in the electromagnetic field in the vacuum at the Australian National University’s Quantum Optics Lab. These are transformed into random, colourful light patterns. Those patterns scroll along an 18-metre light screen, forming a dancing wave under the LUX passage ceiling.
Illumination by Digestion
INSTALLATION / STEVEN VAN WINGERDEN MARIﾃ起BURGKAPEL
WILLEM VAN DOORN MARIﾃ起BURGPLEIN
While alternative energy sources are drawing increasing attention, we take our supply of electricity and its complex infrastructure for granted. In his Future Fossils project, Steven van Wingerden embarks on a quest for alternative, small-scale and aesthetic energy systems. That search addresses such questions as: can we derive energy from water lilies? In Future Fossils, Steven van Wingerden demonstrates just how synthetic biology can help us advance in this quest.
Inspired by the old gas wells once used on farms, Willem van Doorn set out to develop new technology for obtaining a self-sufficient source of gas. Working on the farm where he grew up, he explored different options for generating energy utilising waste streams and used materials. The result was Illumination by Digestion: a self-sufficient bio fermenter that converts the gases produced during fermentation into light.
Industry by Nature
In Vena Verbum
INSTALLATION / KARLIJN SIBBEL MARIËNBURGKAPEL
INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION / TIDDO BAKKER LUX CAFÉ
Increasingly, demand has risen for materials and manufacturing processes that don’t drain our supply of natural resources and create excess waste. Our search for this has led us to natural raw materials with fascinating properties, such as growth. In Industry by Nature, Karlijn Sibbel has joined forces with Wageningen University to study how algae and salt can be used to create aesthetically pleasing 3D objects.
While we may not notice, plants respond continually to light, temperature and oxygen. Designer, Tiddo Bakker, conceived In Vena Verbum to introduce us to this amazing world. By creating a symbiosis between nature and technology, In Vena Verbum seeks to forge a new bond between humans and nature. In this work, Bakker enables his audience to experience just how sensitive nature is.

How do you explain your perceptions to others? How can you show someone the effects of synaesthesia? Layers of Reality takes viewers on an extraordinary journey of the senses, where things such as colours can be felt - or heard! Based on the author’s own life, this book contains a photo series that seek to convey Püschel’s experiences to the readers, including her ability to feel colours.
Letters from Utopia is a documentary photographic research that studies groups who wish to extend the human life span extremely or even aim to become immortal. For this project Daan Paans visited five different movements and their key players who have a shot at an utopian world order. The stories range from an occult belief of the past to a scientific outlook for the future.

Are you up for an incredible sensory experience? Meet artist duo Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand, who are clearly fascinated with the aesthetics of scientific advancements. Their performance, Mucilaginous Omniverse, is inspired by research into fluid dynamics, light and sound. The duo project dancing drops of silicon that move with sound waves and are guided in part by stroboscopic light.
Matthijs Munnik’s latest work of art, Neolastoscope, will make its debut at InScience. Using a camera obscura technique, Munnik created this abstract film in a projector he personally built. The film itself features an interplay between design and colour, where geometric patterns, lines and objects merge together in an abstract landscape. The installation was inspired by colour projectors dating back to the early 20th century, including Thomas Wilfred’s Clavilux and Hirshfeld-Mack’s Farbenlichtspiel. www.matthijsmunnik.nl
Prototype for a new BioMachine
INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION / ROB VAN DER BURG LUX CAFÉ
INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION / IVAN HENRIQUES LUX CAFÉ
What happens when we introduce the world of robotics to nature? When Brazilian artist Ivan Henriques did just that, the result was his Prototype for a new BioMachine. This plant installation explores new forms of communication with living organisms, people and machines. The plant features an electric signal in its cell, but has no nerves, nerve threads or nerve cables like people, or machines. Prototype for a new BioMachine transforms plants into sensors. As soon as a visitor touches a plant’s leaves, it begins moving.
In a rapidly changing world with an ever-dwindling natural environment, it is becoming increasingly difficult for plants to adapt to their habitats. Inspired by the beauty and fragility of nature, Rob van den Burg developed the Nova Eden laboratory, which uses technology to enable plants to respond to changes in their environment. www.robvanderburg.com

INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION / TIMO GESCHWILL MARIËNBURGKAPEL
INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION / DANIELA BUONVINO / PETER LOVINK MARIËNBURGPLEIN
The installation, Real Virtuality offers visitors an entirely new way to experience the real world. Learn what it is like to be both physically and virtually present in a room. As a visitor, you’ll receive the Oculus Rift that allows you to experience being in a virtual room that’s isolated from your physical environment. What’s more, you’ll be free to look around wherever you like. Elements such as light, lines, forms, shapes, colours and symmetry all change. The initial architectural unit you encounter also gets deconstructed. Real Virtuality is a radical, subjective adventure in virtual reality.
These are no ordinary lampposts. As soon as you approach, you’ll notice they respond to sound. Equipped with transducers that detect sound, they transform the sounds of the city into a light show. Those nightly strolls will never be quite the same with these around!
Shapes of Time
PHOTOGRAPHY / UDO PRINSEN LUX CAFÉ
LIGHT INSTALLATION / NICKY ASSMANN MARIËNBURGKAPEL
The largest Dutch expedition to the arctic is over. A ship packed with scientists sailed around Spitsbergen to the uninhabitated island Edgeøya. The goal was to do research for the impact of human presence in a remote area. Udo Prinsen participated and recorded the expedition with analogue camera techniques as super8 film and pinhole solargraphy.
Solaris, an installation by artist Nicky Assmann, presents numerous soap screens that can be raised manually. This process creates membranes of liquid soap that function like an interventional shield in space. Carefully selected lighting reveals the distinctive effects of the soap film: a turbulent choreography of iridescent light and flowing movements. The unfolding drama is fascinating as gravity slowly seizes control of the soap film, right up until that inevitable moment when the fragile membrane bursts.
Speculative Societies MAGAZINE / ARIE MALLEGROM LUX CAFĂ‰
Imagine a new discipline that studies the meeting ground between reality and impossibilities. For instance, what would happen if nature no longer existed? The magazine, Speculative Societies, presents three potential future societies faced with this problem. What would their daily life be like? What would they eat? Select one of the potential future scenarios and join in this journey of discovery. www.ariemallegrom.nl

The Awards + Symmetry — ROUNDING OFF INSCIENCE’S PREMIERE IS THE FILM SYMMETRY AND THE CEREMONIES FOR THE YOUTH JURY AWARD, STUDENT JURY AWARD AND NTR AUDIENCE AWARD. FOLLOWING AN EXTENSIVE DISCUSSION, THE JURIES WILL SELECT THE WINNER OF THE FIRST INSCIENCE AWARD! ROB VAN HATTUM, CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF NEMO, IS THE HOST OF THIS PROGRAM.
The Awards programme — Symmetry
The Awards Ceremony
How can art and science reinforce each other? Joining this discussion will be film scholar Patricia Pisters, filmmaker Ruben van Leer, and physicist Sijbrand de Jong of Radboud University, who will become Chair of CERN on 1 January 2016. Their discussion will focus on questions, such as how science can be translated into art. Why does CERN have such an extensive art programme? And why does science hold such fascination for artists?
This is the moment: the premiere awards ceremony at InScience - Dutch International Science Film Festival. Who will win the very first InScience Award?
Following the showing of Symmetry, artist Sanne Willemsen and scientist Anne Speckens will join for their presentation. In it, they will unveil the results of their collaboration in the Besiendershuis during the festival to explore a cooperative interplay between art and science.
Writer Wout Waanders of Literair Productiehuis Wintertuin, will write a literary report of the first edition of InScience. This report will cover highlights, such as Waanders’ most striking observations and most amazing moments as well as instances where he felt moved or was brought to tears or laughter.
